Planning Programs for Infants: State Series Paper (Number 2).
Woodruff, Geneva; And Others
Planning for infant intervention programs is the focus of the booklet. The approach rests on key principles, including family support, interagency cooperation, and individualization of early intervention services. Questions are raised for consideration in six topic areas: (1) planning (structure of planning process); (2) funding (legislative authority, long range plans, types of competitive or entitlement approach); (3) programming (location of services, individualized programming options, specific policy guidelines regarding service delivery models); (4) personnel (staffing patterns, certification, licensing, preservice and inservice training); (5) eligibility (use of noncategorical or categorical guidelines, responsibility for locating and identifying eligible children and families); and monitoring and evaluation (responsibility for planning and implementing the monitoring system, quality issues of service delivery as well as compliance with regulations).
